Hundreds of anti-Brexit campaigners have descended on the Labor Party annual conference, in Brighton to demand a U-turn on European Union (EU) withdrawal.
Protesters waving EU flags have gathered on the Brighton waterfront to urge the Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn to “get real” and stand up for their “EU rights”. They chanted “exit Brexit” outside the Brighton Hilton Metropole.
At the conference, Corbyn promised to listen to Labor members’ calls to keep the UK in the single market.
The Labor leader, who before the Brexit vote was steadfastly anti-EU, warned remaining in the single market could hamper the government’s ability to protect jobs and invest in industry.
The Conservative Party will hold its annual conference in Manchester on Oct. 1 when another larger anti-Brexit march is scheduled to take place.
